    I'd like Nishikori to win but on the other hand, no one wants to be deprived of the next match up against Nadal. :p

    Well it's been neck and neck. Nishikori has certainly not given him an easy ride. :) But right now Federer is looking like going up 2 sets to 1.

    Quite a tough 3rd set there for Federer.

    I really hope Nishikori can hold on and take this to a 5th set.

    Break up now for Federer. Hope he can close this out quickly to save his legs for Nadal match.

    I haven't seen any Djokovic highlights but Nadal looks unreal so far and very eager for the title.

    Who's your money on to take it all the way and take the title? I'm thinking Nadel

    I reckon a Djokovic vs Nadal final, with Djokovic winning.

    Managed to get around to watching Murray and Williams yesterday which was an awesome surprise given I was only expecting a few games of doubles and they had played on centre court the previous two rounds. First time I had entered the ballot so got incredibly lucky.

    First game I watched was Groenefeld & Schuurs vs Krejcikova & Siniakova, then Hsieh & Strycova vs Mertens & Sabalanka and finally Murray & Williams vs Soares and Melichar.

    Second game probably produced the best quality of tennis although Soares looked a few levels above everyone else in his match against Murray and was the standout doubles player. Can see why he and Jamie Murray were so successful together.

    I snuck in a few videos but they seem to be really hot on people uploading those so I'll leave a few pictures of the day.

    I'd really recommend it for anyone that loves watching tennis.

    That was all a bit too easy for Djokovic.

    Even with his record against Djokovic, I can't see how Bautista Agut hurts him from the baseline.

    Edit: That was a bit of a shocking set for Djokovic, his level plummeted.

    4-3 in opening set. Neck and neck so far, possibly a clue to how the rest of the match will go. I want tiebreaks and 5 sets. And a penalty shootout. :)

    Great first set and one Federer had to win to have a chance imo.

    Is Federer actually human? Has someone cut him open to check he isn't some tennis cyborg machine?
